Since his appointment in May of 2017, Special Counsel Robert Mueller racked up a lengthy record of court wins, but none of them answered some of the central questions the public had about his investigation into potential collusion between President Donald Trump or his campaign and Russia.

Along with a team of experienced prosecutors and attorneys, the former FBI director has indicted, convicted or gotten guilty pleas from 34 people and three companies, including top advisers to President Trump, Russian spies and hackers with ties to the Kremlin. The charges range from interfering with the 2016 election and hacking emails to lying to investigators and tampering with witnesses.

So how long do think it should go on? How much money should be spent? They choose who investigated and he found no conclusion now that investigation is looking for crimes committed by others.

the republicans have shown us that 20 years and a 100 million dollars is well worth it.. no problem..

carol, what are we to do with you?

You think President Obama should be blamed for this?

lindh was sentenced in 2002.... who was president at that time???

Who was the judge?

Lindh was released early for good behavior,, who sat on the board that made the decision?

just like a right winger,, anything at all, blame in on the liberals and the past President..

but do not bother with facts.. you would never know one anyway..

The man known as the “American Taliban” was just released early from federal prison in the US — a decision nearly as controversial as the man himself.

John Walker Lindh was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2002 after pleading guilty to supporting the Taliban, the brutal Islamist group that harbored al-Qaeda in Afghanistan during the planning of the 9/11 attacks.

His capture alongside Taliban fighters in November 2001 quickly turned him into a national obsession. Photos of the 20-year-old Lindh at the time of his capture — face covered in filth, hair shaggy and matted, eyes wild — were ubiquitous in the press.

It will matter not to you, but I wished to point out the money and the time spent on an unworthy deed by the republican hate squad..

Yea, so bad we spent 22 months and some yet to be determined amount of money on your orange criminal..

we indicted, imprisoned and removed many of the orange gang.. recovered millions of dollars to offset the cost of our investigation..

but with the orange infestation still in office you clearly think you have won..

but at the cost of a great lose to America..

The matter of help was addressed long ago and several times.. the blame was laid on congress..

Why are you not concerned about the over 100 who died during the Bush administration from attacks on our overseas stations?

You are nuts,, the republicans spent 100 million taxpayer dollars and 2 decades trying to lie Lady Hillary into prison..

they got absolutely nothing, but they did keep her out of the white house and that let the orange stumble bum sit where not orange A** should ever go..

Look at it this way, for a 100 million dollars you got more then you should have, more then you ever will, to spend more time and taxpayer money after her will put the final nail in the once fine GOP party.

You may want to see all that money and time spent, but you can bet your butt that the powers of the GOP are more then glad to have her writing books..

they, the ones who tell you what to say and do will not touch Lady Hillary with a ten foot pole..

they count their undeserved blessing and will not touch the issue..

excerpt from the final report.

Truth is that the Republican’s in the House and the Senate have had two decades of defining Hillary Clinton as un trustworthy and un truthful. They have done it spending more taxpayers money on battling her than any other political figure in history.

The Republican’s have put a target on her back since she was first lady back in the 1990’s and they have over the years spent more $100 million taxpayer dollars on investigation’s aimed at taking Hillary Clinton down.

She hit their radar when she attempted to overhaul the heath care system and Republicans were not pleased with aggressive style that Clinton showed as a first lady. After all she wasn’t co-president to her husband Bill and her attempt to advance health care legislation were fought tooth and nail by the GOP lead Congress.

They then went after the first lady for her ties to Whitewater investment project in Arkansas that prompted the Republican to appoint a special prosecutor Ken Star to look into matter with the hope of finding some criminal offenses they could pin on the Clinton’s.

The GOP spent over $82 million tax payer dollars on four Clinton related scandals pushed by the Republicans lawmakers leading up to a much anticipated report from Star the Independent Council. Finally the findings of the Star report were released in September 2000, with the following conclusion. “This office determined that the evidence was insufficient to prove to a jury beyond a reasonable doubt that either President or Mrs. Clinton knowingly participated in any criminal conduct.”
House Benghazi committee files final report and shuts down
Mary Troyan, USA Today Published 2:07 p.m. ET Dec. 12, 2016 | Updated 6:07 p.m. ET Dec. 12, 2016

Gowdy on Monday called the report the “final, definitive accounting” of the Benghazi attacks.

“The committee is proud to have been able to tell the story of the ingenuity and bravery displayed by our nation’s heroes in Benghazi, who banded together to save one another, when no other help was ever on the way,” Gowdy said.

Democrats contended all along that the committee was a political effort to taint Clinton, an allegation that got some traction when House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told Fox News that because of the committee, "her numbers are dropping."

The panel’s top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, said Monday that the final report was a “desperate rehash.”

“Republicans voted on this partisan report five months ago, but delayed filing it and completing the committee until after the election,” Cummings said. “Republicans promised a process that was fair and bipartisan, but the American people got exactly the opposite.”

How do you get the UN involved? and Muslims??

The withdrawal agreement, which runs to 599 pages, covers the following main areas:[5]

Money, particularly the division of assets and liabilities, and payment of any debt outstanding
Citizens rights, both of UK citizens in EU countries and vice-versa
Border arrangements and customs, particularly along the border between the UK and the Republic of Ireland
The law, and the mechanisms for resolving disputes, currently vested with the European Court of Justice
The agreement also sets up a transitional period, which lasts until 31 December 2020 and can be extended once by mutual consent. During the transitional period, the UK will remain a member of the European Economic Area, the single market, and the customs union, EU laws will continue to apply to the UK, and the UK will continue to pay into the EU budget. However, the UK will not be represented in the decision-making bodies of the EU. The transition period will give businesses time to adjust to the new situation and time for the British and EU governments to negotiate a new trade deal between the EU and UK.[6][7]

On the Irish border question, there is a Northern Ireland Protocol at the end of the agreement which sets a backstop which will come into force, in the case that there is no new agreement between the EU and UK before the end of the transition period. In that case, the UK will remain in a customs union with the EU. Neither party can unilaterally withdraw from this customs union. The goal of this backstop agreement is to avoid a "hard" Irish border, where customs checks are necessary.[8]

The governance will be through a Joint Committee with representatives of both the European Union and the British government. There will be a number of specialised committees reporting to the Joint Committee.

The withdrawal agreement also includes provisions for the UK to leave the Convention Defining the Statute of the European Schools, with the UK bound by the Convention and the accompanying regulations on Accredited European Schools until the end of the last academic year of the transition period, i.e. the end of the spring semester of 2020-2021.[9]

My topic was on modern science having been made possible by the mindset and worldview of believing Christian scientists.

Why are you specifically interested in the 13th to 17th century? How about the 1st to the 21st century?

monastery (n.) "place of residence occupied in common by persons seeking religious seclusion from the world,"

Jesus instructed His followers to let their "light" shine as an inspiration before men. One cannot do that from a monastery. It is a selfish pursuit. Nowhere throughout the Bible do God's people live in monasteries. They lived in families.

The traditional account of Christian monasticism begins with St Paul of Thebes retreating to a cave in the Egyptian desert in AD 250 to avoid the persecution initiated by Decius. St Paul himself is probably a mythical figure, but there may well have been Egyptian hermits at this time. At the other end of the north African coast the bishop of Carthage, St Cyprian, goes into hiding in the same year and for the same reason.

There are Christian hermits in Egypt by the early 4th century. The best known of them is St Anthony, whose Famous temptations take lurid and often sexual forms which later prove irresistible to generations of painters.

Early in the 4th century, perhaps in response to the new favour shown to Christianity by Emperor Constantine, Anthony organizes other hermits, living nearby in the desert, into a partly shared existence. For most of the week they maintain their solitary life. But on Sundays they come together for worship and a communal meal.

In this there is the beginning of a monastic community. One of the world's oldest monasteries, named after St Anthony and established soon after his death, still survives in the desert near the Red Sea - below the mountain cave in which the saint spent his last years.

None of that did anything to spread Christianity.

I know there are ancient Viking ruins on the East Coast in the U.S., and the red anchors of the ancient Chinese ships have been found in the waters off California. What is the point?

I believe you missed it.

The ancient and medieval worlds did not have conceptions resembling the modern understandings of "science" or of "religion",however, certain elements of modern ideas on the subject recur throughout history. The phrases "religion and science" and "science and religion" first emerged in literature in the 19th century. This coincided with the refining of "science" (from the studies of "natural philosophy") and of "religion" as distinct concepts in the preceding few centuries - partly due to professionalization of the sciences, the Protestant Reformation, colonization, and globalization.

The term "scientist" was first coined by the naturalist-theologian William Whewell in 1834 and it was applied to those who sought knowledge and understanding of nature.

The vast majority of the natives on the Caribbean islands, just as those in the U.S., died after exposure to another culture's bacteria and viruses because they had no immunity.

I know you have no interest in my topic, so, "never mind."

Truly a nice companion on your Picture.. very nice..

My use of the time line I put in was very arbitrary and by no means meant to be accurate.. only that at the general time of the middle ages, the monasteries were the center of education..

Visits to caves... I can not resist,, do you consider Muhammad s visit to the cave to get the word of God from Jesus as part of these cave assemblies?

Interesting post.. I enjoyed it.. thanks... have a nice evening..

With Mueller saying that there was no collusion between Trump and the Russians, he answered the reason for his investigation. Anything in addition was extraneous, irrelevant and immaterial.

OOO contrar..... the only place that refused to extend kudos to President Obama was and is the right wing who now grovel for the orange cult leader..

All of you who cry about the money Obama had to spend must, at some level, know why it was so vital that he did so..

tax cuts, 2 wars, plan D, and the great recession.. these are the times that try mans souls and require government spending..

the orange stumble bum, In a time of solid economy and recovered trade/business cuts tax revenue, drives up the future cost which will be paid by the middle class, attacks decades old trade at a time of this recovery, use unfocused tariffs, which already have driven up the cost of appliances and auto..

I will add one little item..

Our fine leader President Obama had two sorties with tariffs.. one was bad.. tires etc did nothing good..

the second was a concentrated tariff on Chinese steel.. this put the Minnesota iron minors back to work, along with the other states..

the orange con man made several claims that his shotgun style tariffs were what did that and ran editorials to push the lie..

But, the Minnesota iron range did not believe him and in the 2018 election went very strong for the Dems, knowing full well that as normal, the Dems took the workload for the working man and middle class.

There is no "accomplishment" involved.

On what, exactly, do you base your belief that, and I quote "Now, everyone knows that for centuries the home of education was in monasteries built by roman Catholics.."

I certainly did not know that. No one I know "knows" that, nor do I believe it is either fact, or relative to my topic.

I am impressed with your personal knowledge of the explorer Columbus, credited with officially making the most important discovery recorded in the history of mankind, second only to the revelation that God, in human form, had chosen to dwell among us, and effect our salvation, for those who are willing to accept.

To declare Christopher Coumbus so totally devoid of any humane qualities or virtues is remarkable. If only, he could speak, one can only surmise that his opinion on your life's accomplishments might be less harsh.

maybe it is indeed irrelevant to you topic.. what ever that was..

If you feel that Monasteries and the church were not the home of education and the scientific research for the 13 to 17th centuries, where do you thing it took place?

At least one settlement of vikings and possably Chinese were in North America 3 hundred years before
Columbus sailed the ocean blue..

Columbus had word of mouth reports, people had found Eskimo bodies in the north Atlantic and a report that Columbus had a map..

Columbus also made slaves of the natives on the Caribbean island and this killed the overwhelming majority of these natives..

But I digress and you say i am off topic, so proceed with you post and my apologies for the diversion..

By Chuck Colson | October 10, 2016

Chuck Colson on Columbus and the rise of science.

"Thank heaven that Columbus was able to convince the world that the earth was round?" Except, Columbus didn’t have to convince anyone.

The liberal media are terrified of the truth, especially when it leads to uncomfortable questions about their own leftist worldview.

For well over a century and a half, secular intellectuals have promulgated the myth that when it came to understanding the natural world, medieval and earlier Christians were superstitious simpletons. Sit back and listen to Chuck Colson as he debunks that pernicious fairy tale:

To paraphrase the opening of a popular ESPN show, these four things everyone knows are true:

1) Before Columbus's first voyage, people thought the world was flat.
2)When Copernicus wrote that the Earth revolved around the Sun, his conclusions came out of nowhere. 3) the "scientific revolution" of the seventeenth century invented science as we know it.
4), false beliefs and impediments to science are Christianity's fault.

There's just one problem: All four statements are false.

As Rodney Stark writes in his new book, "For the Glory of God," "every educated person" of Columbus's time, especially Christian clergy, "knew the earth was round." More than 800 years before Columbus's voyage, Bede, the church historian, taught this, as did Hildegard of Bingen and Thomas Aquinas. The title of the most popular medieval text on astronomy was Sphere, not exactly what you would call a book that said the earth was flat.

" By his hand the north is stretched out in space, and the earth is hanging on nothing." Job 26:7

As for Copernicus's sudden flash of insight, Stark quotes the eminent historian L. Bernard Cohen, who called that idea "an invention of later historians." Copernicus "was taught the essential fundamentals leading to his model by his Scholastic professors"—that is, Christian scholars.

That model was "developed gradually by a succession of … Scholastic scientists over the previous two centuries." Building upon their work on orbital mechanics, Copernicus added the "implicit next step."

Thus, the idea that science was invented in the seventeenth century, "when a weakened Christianity could no longer prevent it," as it is said, is false. Long before the famed physicist Isaac Newton, clergy like John of Sacrobosco, the author of Sphere, were doing what can be only called science. The Scholastics — Christians — not the Enlightenment, invented modern science.

Three hundred years before Newton, a Scholastic cleric named Jean Buridan anticipated Newton's First Law of Motion, that a body in motion will stay in motion unless otherwise impeded. It was Buridan, not an Enlightenment luminary, who first proposed that the Earth turns on its axis.

In Stark's words, "Christian theology was necessary for the rise of science." Science only happened in areas whose worldview was shaped by Christianity, that is, Europe. Many civilizations had alchemy; only Europe developed chemistry. Likewise, astrology was practiced everywhere, but only in Europe did it become astronomy.

That's because Christianity depicted God as a "rational, responsive, dependable, and omnipotent being" who created a universe with a "rational, lawful, stable" structure. These beliefs uniquely led to "faith in the possibility of science."

So why the Columbus myth? Because, as Stark writes, "the claim of an inevitable and bitter warfare between religion and science has, for more than three centuries, been the primary polemical device used in the atheist attack on faith." Opponents of Christianity have used bogus accounts like the ones I've mentioned to not only discredit Christianity, but also position themselves as "liberators" of the human mind and spirit.

Well, it's up to us to set the record straight, and I think it's time to tell our neighbors that what everyone thinks they know about Christianity and science is just plain wrong.

"He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth; its dwellers are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to live in." (Isaiah 40:22)
